DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will increase your online security substantially and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email authentication system – your email messages will be delivered to any audience without being rejected and nobody will be able to send out messages faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is truly important in case the essence of your worldwide web presence suggests sending regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current clients.
